Woohoo!  Painting is the most fun part.  For me, anyway.   :P  Keep it up, vod!  You're doing great.

I enjoy painting too! I got ao excited when I started taking some of the masking off... Its awesome to see everything start to fall into place and really  ‘see’  my armor in reality vs on paper and plain resin/plastic pieces

Nice progress :)

Thank you!

Awesome work! I'm excited to see everything come together. It looks like you did a nice job hitting the edges of your plates with weathering as well as getting some nicks and marks on the main surface. And those gloves look very cool. :D

Thank you! Once upon a time I did bodywork on KC-130’s (large aircraft) so thought common areas where panels wear from rubbing together, and from bumps, sea/sand etc.

For an update, I went a little insane to try and get kit wearable for clan gathering. We are still waiting in gauntlets, I had not attached knees yet, and need to weather soft parts and blackwash armor...oh yeah, an need to work on weapon!  But wore all together (what I have) for first time!

So, wanted to finally cut the bottom bar off, but wanted to secure it in some way...so, built a sort of bracket!


This is what I used! Cant remember what it was...think a pipe strap...Easy enough to bash it into the shape I wanted, lightweight, but still strong enough to keep the helm in the correct shape once the bar was removed.



And here it is! Fitted into place



Looks much better! Now to smooth out the cut marks and touch up paint...

Thank you! We had so much fun!

After looking at pictures, I decided to make some adjustments with color. Wanted to tie in the red a bit more into over all look.







Also...armor bits all scratched, blackwash, drybrush! Now just to make gauntlets look like the rest when they arrive! 

And on to weathering soft parts!! Also drafted pattern for gaiters, so will see how well those turn out too!

A few touch ups, knees, and made pouches! Oh, and gaiters. Still a bit to do, but getting there!


Yes...my chest plates went all wonky  this time  -_-

Looking good vod! Would check with your Ruu on your loin cloth-- it may need another layer, or some more structure to meet CRL requirements for "substantial" fabric.

Whew, been a good while since an update, will do better!

So what have I been up to...little fixes on armor, weathering/damaging soft parts, double layered the loin cloth as reccomended to be more substantial ( and looks much better!). Working on finishing up gauntlets.

Will get some pictures up soon hopefully 😅
